Someone wandered into Bosena the other day while I was docked and noticed me in local. They said hello, and I said hello back because I am friendly that way. After that point the conversation wandered off onto a strange path that has left me confused. He asked about a 1v1. I said "No" as I am prone to do. He then said that he had read my blog and was looking for my weaknesses and trying to separate that out from my propaganda.
That made me blink for two reasons. Normally I am tickled a various assortment of pastel, sweet smelling colors when I meet people in game that read my blog. This was a bit of a change.
The first is why anyone would look for my weaknesses? I lay them out rather clearly most days. They are here all over the blog. But more so if he is looking for my weaknesses he is coming to attack me? I guess? I know that a side effect of babbling all over the internet and not learning STFU to III or IV is that some people are going to decide that they need to come train me to level V on their own.
But, I don't think that I portray myself as something to find weaknesses in to take down. That is what really left me puzzled in the end. But, I may be blinded with my own arrogance.
Or am I blinded to my own propaganda?
As far as I am concerned I don't do propaganda. I don't do posters running around trying to sway people's opinions. I'm a rather firm believer in people thinking for themselves. If I have to think for you its just a bad day for everyone. I just talk. My stream of conscious habits have been pointed out before. So perhaps it is more accurate to say that I think. Not everyone in my corporation agrees with my views. I don't agree with all of theirs.
Is that propaganda?
The blog banter the other month was about propaganda. It is not something that I am into. That is why I spend a lot of my time trying to be simple and honest here. But, Eve being what Eve is, I should not be surprised that some would assume that I am carefully crafting my words to create some type of viewpoint for people to regard me and/or my corporation and/or alliance.
Yet I do not. I'm pretty happy with just babbling about my day as it happens.
But who believes me?
What a circle that creates of argument, thought, counter thought, and assumptions. In a weird way. A very weird way.
